Group coaching programs for youth and young adults
WHAT ARE COACHING CIRCLES?
Coaching Circles bring together leading edge Professional Transformative Coaching competencies with circle work, the enduring tradition of holding space for truth-telling, experiencial learning, and both individual and collective transformation.
The Coaching Circle format creates a safe space in which to develop and practice essential emotional and cognitive skills, address personal issues, and identify and commit to purposeful life choices.
WHAT ARE SOME COACHING CIRCLE LEARNING OUTCOMES?
building social and relational skills with peers and adults, including giving and receiving support
developing self-awareness, emotional literacy, emotional regulation, and impulse control
problem solving, decision making, and critical thinking
accountability, commitment, goal setting, and how to realize ambitions and objectives.
HOW DO COACHING CIRCLES WORK?
The safe space is created with simple practices:
opening check-in, closing check-out, by all participants
agreements for the group dynamics; confidentiality, mutual respect, and honesty plus others as identified by the circle
agreements for the effective functioning of the group; the order in which the participants speak, dialogue between participants, coach interventions etc.
Programs run for a minimum of twelve weekly sessions.
Coaching Circles are for youth and young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 approximately.
Content is dependent on the agreed goals for the group and can include:
bringing awareness and clarity to participant's immediate issues
working to a curriculum, spontaneous and/or planned
outcome focused, when individual goals are identified at the start.
